Raised by vampyre relatives, Jane grows to resent the lifestyle's effect on her upbringing. No sunlight, nighttime hours, and a diet of bloody red meat is no way for a mortal girl to live. Things change for Jane when the ghost of her uncle visits her, imparts her parents' slayer history, and charges her with the responsibility of striking out to find others of her kind and learn the slayer ways.

After trying her luck at a school full of zombies, Jane finds a position as a governess, where she meets and falls in love with Mr. Rochester. But evil strikes in the form of Mr. Rochester's first wife, a violent werewolf he keeps locked in the attic. Jane departs to study the slayer tradition with her cousins, but finds herself yearning to reunite with Mr. Rochester. She returns to find that Mr. Rochester has been bitten by the werewolf, and only she can release him from his curse.

    " I am usually weary of adaptations or remakes of novels, especially those recently concerned with the hybridization of victorian period pieces and monsters. This was case in point with Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, an awful example of the author copy and pasting paragraphs involving zombies at random parts of Pride & Prejudice. Such was not the case with Jane Slayre. Jane Eyre was in itself not terribly interesting (I gave it two of five stars) but Jane Slayre managed to take the novel and imbue it with zombies, vampires, and werewolves in such a way that the monsters weren't just a periphery to the main story. I was rather impressed and believed that the author really put forth effort in properly making the story not just about Jane Eyre who happens to interact with monsters, but rather Jane Slayre, who was born a Slayer and found her role rather effortlessly through the deaths of monsters. I didn't give this book above four stars not because I held Jane Eyre in high esteem but rather because the book was still hard to read when it wasn't about zombies, vampires, and werewolves. Nevertheless, I recommend this hybrid to others. "

    " In general, I really liked this book. I found it to be a pretty good parody of one of my favorite classics. "

    " Sorry to Bronte but this so made me laugh. Out loud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy Nevarez | 11/8/2013

    " I must confess that I am getting rather tired of all these "smash-up" genre books. I only gave this a chance because it was based on my favorite book. I have to say that I found the added bits not nearly as interesting as the original story and text. I guess I am too much a fan of "Jane Eyre" to be swayed. "

    " I usually am not into books on horror and the macabre but I thought I would give this one a try since it is a take off of a classic. To be fair I really was not sure what it would be like. I loved it. It followed the original classic very well with this rewrite into the paranormal. The main character, Jane, is made very believable in this new twist on the old classic. The writer, Sherry Browning Erwin, well thought out the story line and made it not just funny but well worth the read. I am looking forward to her other books. "

    " I did not actually finish this book. It's been years since I read the original, and so I do not know whether it is the fault of the original or Erwin that this book is slow, repetitive, and strains to get to the point. I rarely put down books, even if they're no good, so that I put this one down really means I did not enjoy it. And for a book with a "blood-sucking twist," it's even worse criticism, I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamrya | 9/12/2013

    " It was to be expected. Jane's life story was already written - so the slayer was interwoven with the known. "

    " Reader, I buried him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 8/29/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and really look forward to reading the original version! This has always been a favorite story of mine (the original) since I've seen the movie. Beautifully done!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neil Mitchell | 7/24/2013

    " An enjoyable literary horror mash-up, very much in the "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" lineage. Jane Slayre is a likeable and well-realised character and the vampires, werewolves and zombies sit naturally in the world, giving far more enjoyable explanations to events in its source novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffany | 7/3/2013

    " I'm not sure if I liked this book or not...it felt like a gimmick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dolores | 6/11/2013

    " Jane Eyre as vampire slayer? Why not? It's summertime and Jane needs a sense of humor. This mashup keeps much of the original's dialogue and plot while giving Jane a physical strength to match her moral one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thejourn | 5/31/2013

    " After reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, I actually told my husband "They should do Jane Eyre." The original text has enough gothic elements that the newly added pieces fit in seamlessly. I am extremely happy with this work! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rene Miller | 4/8/2013

    " Definetly an interesting twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 7/28/2012

    " If you enjoyed the original book by Charlotte Bronfe and you enjoy total tongue in cheek gothic horror then this is a very humorous read. It has me laughing continually. I definitely would not call it classic literature but having fun with the spoof. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 4/30/2012

    " For some reason, I was a little slow getting into this book, but once I did, I really really enjoyed it! This is one of the best Twisted Classics that I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Em | 12/8/2011

    " A really respectable mishmash of vampire fighting and romance that I thought would be terrible. I was really pleasantly surprised. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 4/23/2010

    " I always liked Jane Eyre but I couldn't fathom the story line being too similar once you make her a slayer and throw in monsters. However, it amazed me in that respect. I enjoyed this very much. "
